That's really cool, but I couldn't get any of the effects to load. Maybe I need to update something.

I tried to see something when I logged onto McRib.com but the whole screen was totally black.

My computer is strange.

Let it die. It was never a good idea, nor well executed.

I've never had the slightest desire to try one. Without the sauce they just look like gray pressed and formed meat.

I liked it also. Usually get them all the time when they are back in season.

I always thougth that were decent. While they are not gourmet by any means they were better than the burgers. I always called it mystery meat. To this day I will still occasionaly go for the boneless pork rib patties that u cook in the oven. there are like 6 and they make decent sammies.

It's kinda like a white castle. U know it is something wrong but it just taste so right. I am wondering now( dare i ask) what is in those?
is there a way as cooks we could build a better boneless rib patty??

Kinda reminds me of the BBQ beef or pork u get that is all mixed together to resemble pulled pork but no where near as good.

Blech. I'm happy to say McBye Bye to the McRib. Lousy sandwich with a worse sauce.

You want to save it? You can have mine, then. I don't want it.

Those doritos do not deserve the right to be called habanero doritos.

As if the McRib is actually "ribs" It's just some sort of rib-shaped pork patty they put on a bun and slather with BBQ sauce. You can't insult BBQ (or ribs) by calling that thing "ribs".

Couldn't agree more. It's just "processed rib food" masquerading as ribs . . . and food.

Save the rocker girl. She's cute. The McRib isn't.
